R2-IQ: Head Turn

Build Day 42

Failed assembly (doesn't fit)
Today I was working on mounting the head, and getting it to turn.

At this point, it's going to turn slow.

My first attempt would not fit in the body.

Head Internal
There will be one axle that goes up through the body and into the head.  That should keep it pretty straight.
Head connection
The bottom of the head has a couple plates that line up with a plate on the "head-turning-assembly".  This will make it easy to attach and remove.
Head motor assembly
The final assembly has a worm-gear drive, and two roller-wheels  for the head to sit on, to allow it to turn more easily.
